Israeli forces order halt on house construction near Bethlehem


Bethlehem, Saturday, June 15, 2019 (WAFA) – Israeli forces ordered today a halt on the construction of a house in the village of Artas, near Bethlehem city in the occupied West Bank, according to Palestinian security sources.

An Israeli military force accompanied by staff from the Israeli Civil Administration broke into the village and handed Ayesh Ayesh, a local citizen, a notice ordering him to stop the construction of his house, under the pretext that the house lacks an Israeli construction permit.

The village is located in Area C of the West Bank, under full Israeli administrative and military control, where Israel rarely issues construction permits to Palestinians, forcing many to build without permits.
